I cam to think: WHAT IF Arthur and Lyanna had ...Dany? And Jon was already born to Ashara and Ned? Martin says, he is 9 months older than Dany.
In our Story all children come after their fathers. If Jon was indeed Neds bastard son, then it would explain why Ned indeed raised him being his bastard.
We don't know yet how Arthur looked like, but we dp know that any Dayne can look like a Targaryen.
If House Dayne is the original dragonblood then it would still work. And Dany has Stark traits as well, that is why some people think she might be Neds daughter, conceived at Starfall after the ToJ.
The issue I have with that theory twist: why did Dany then end up with Viserys? Because she was ment to have these dragon eggs? And a non-Targaryen never had a chance?
Personally I still think it is most likely that Dany is Ashara and Rhaegars child.
For a long time, I was convinced that Dany was Rhaegar and Ashara's, but I am not really certain of anything anymore. I see LOTS of possibilities.
We don't know what Arthur looked like, so it's possible he had the silver-gold hair that he passed on to Dany. We don't know Lyanna's hair color either, although most assume it's dark like Arya's. I am not convinced of that. I think the fact that GRRM hasn't revealed it by this point makes it suspicious and that it could be Lyanna that had either blond or red hair. I think Benjen might have reddish hair, too!
We are told that Ashara had dark hair (if we trust Barristan's memories) and we know that Ned had dark hair, so I don't see them as being possible parents for Daenerys as a combo, although Dany does have a fair amount of Stark or icy hints around her.
Some of the "twists" in the story are for plot convenience. GRRM needed Dany to hatch dragons, so no matter who her parents are, he made sure that she got dragon eggs. Ned needed to die to move the plot forward, so GRRM put him in a position where he would fail, which made the man who had effectively ruled the north, and pretty well from the sounds of it for 15 years, fail abysmally in King's Landing BECAUSE the plot demanded it. There are many little question marks along the way in the story, and most of it I just have determined is because GRRM needed it to happen to carry the story forward. Like Catelyn's kidnapping of Tyrion is about the dumbest, most ass backward choice she could have made AND then she just turns her hostage over to her sister's rule, loses him and dooms her husband??? Dumb! But it carries the plot forward!
As to dragonblood in the story, it might be that the Dayne's carry this, and there coloring does make them suspicious because they do have Valyrian traits. I also wonder about the Starks. The First Keep at Winterfell, with it's gargoyles circling the top, hints at dragons. So, either the Stark's have some type of dragon past OR they took Winterfell from someone who did have a past history with dragons. I really think that Stark's could trace back to Asshai, and that could connect them to dragons! Could be tinfoil, too! I have lot's of that!
ETA: Rhaegar and Lyanna does make some sense for Daenerys, since she has hints of Winter/Stark and Dragon/Fire/Targaryen all around her. She would be a great combination for a fire and ice child, and that could be Prince Silverstring and the She of the Blue Rose Crown. I am not a fan of any combination of R+L, but I can see Dany as a pretty good candidate for this child if it happened! But not Jon! It just doesn't fit him or his story!
